ProPublica is seeking a director of audience to oversee our audience strategy, including social, search, newsletters and off-platform efforts. You will help drive audience growth and ensure maximum visibility for our journalism in the places where it can make an impact. This key role reports to a managing editor and the vice president of strategy and operations.
We’re a nonprofit newsroom focused on producing accountability journalism that drives real-world change; our audience-development efforts aim to extend the reach and resonance of our work and to cultivate more direct, meaningful relationships with people in a variety of ways — as readers, experts, community members, citizens and donors. We aim both to find large national audiences for our biggest stories and to ensure that our ambitious local investigations reach the communities and places most affected by the issues we cover.
We know there are great candidates who may not fit into what we’ve described above or who have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself.
We are dedicated to improving our newsroom, in part by better reflecting the people we cover. (Here is a breakdown of our staff.) We are committed to diversity and to building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages. And we are taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, people of color, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities.
If all of this sounds exciting to you, you can apply using this form. The deadline for applications is 10 a.m. ET on June 21.
This job is full-time and includes benefits. The position is ideally based in our New York office, but we’re open to applicants based in one of our other locations as well. Applicants must be eligible to work in the U.S. Questions? Send them to email@example.com. No phone calls, please.
